Reviews

We would like to thank Iona for letting us stay at her beautiful cottage and her hospitality. We had one of the best weekends ever. The chocolate cake was to die for. Such a lovely lady. Clive from Grimsby - 18th September 2018
An excellent property, landlady was lovely & furnishings couldn't be better. Would definitely recommend it.Mrs Helen Pierce - 20th June 2018
Very nice property. Made to feel welcome. Would definitely return.Mr paul matthews - 28th May 2018
Iona was a wonderful host. And the holiday was everything we needed! The cottage was a perfect retreat and base to explore Snowdonia and surrounds. Mrs Tara Cameron - 21st May 2018
Absolutely wonderful house, equipped and designed with care and love, marvelous host, one of the best places ever, highly recommendable. The location is great if you have a car, very quiet place, perfect to relax and at the same time providing convenient access to Snowdonia's main spotsCouple from Germany - 30th August 2017
Great place, great location. Best thing is to drive off every day and them home to eat at night.Paula from West Yorkshire - 5th June 2017
The property was immaculate. We were so delighted when we walked in - everything we could have needed, and more, was provided. The cottage was beautiful and cosy.
I would definitely recommend ZipWorld - although due to bad weather we were only able to take part on the smaller zip wire, we were offered a full refund. We also really enjoyed walking Mount Snowdon - we walked the Llanberis Path which is the longest but easiest route. It was beautiful and there was a cafe half way up to have a break, and one at the very top. It was hard but worth it. We also visited Portmeirion which is an amazing, fairytale town. It is quite expensive at £12 per person to get into the town so I would recommend going on a dry day to be able to stay for a longer period of time. It was cold and raining when we went so unfortunately we could not stay as long as hoped.Couple from Caerphilly - 16th May 2017
The property was clean, modern and held all the facilities needed and more for our romantic break. We would fully recommended it to all.
Recommends: Visit Blaenau Ffestiniog Slate Mine and Porthmadog as well as Pwhelli.Couple from Bromborough Wirral - 13th November 2016
We had the perfect romantic getaway at this stunning cottage. The owner, Iona, was so friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We felt incredibly welcome and comfortable. She even baked us a delicious chocolate cake that was waiting for us on arrival.
The cottage itself was immaculately decorated and beautifully clean. We had everything we could possibly want and really hope to return in the future for another amazing trip.
Thank you so much for everything.
There are a few pubs/hotels in which to eat within a 20minute drive radius of the property. There are also large supermarkets within the same sort of distance. My tip would be to confirm the opening times of the various pubs and shops to ensure you catch them when they are open.
The staff who contacted me from Best of Wales were very polite and helpful. I couldnt have asked for more.Myles from Hertfordshire - 26th October 2016
A really comfortable cottage with everything you could possibly need. On Anglesey, can recommend the Black Seal, Trearddur Bay as a good place for lunch or dinner. We enjoyed lovely plate of mussels in cream sitting outside on the terrace. Went on to South Stack to the RSPB reserve and walked and enjoyed the views. RSPB volunteers are on hand in the tower spotting unusual birds etc. At our visit they were watching a seal and a porpoise. They have a camera and can zoom in and pull it up on a screen for visitors, or you can search yourself using their binoculars.Dee from Eastbourne - 11th September 2016
